When Assistant is working properly, it's great! Unfortunately, that is almost never the case. Saying "Hey Google" (or OK Google), 90% of the time she doesn't answer. Voice recognition is set up correctly, & since she does answer the rest of the time, I'm not sure what the problem is. Also, she tends to go off randomly. I guess it hears "Hey Google" when I'm talking to a friend, or something on TV sets it off. But it's really annoying that it answers when I DON'T want it more often than when I do

This was working most of the time for me. Since a recent update, functionality has gone way down. The assistant does a faint vibration instead of an audible noise, and no longer audibly confirms set timers. It's hands free technically, but now you have to visually confirm that the assistant heard you and did what you wanted.

No longer works like it used to. Doesn't open podcast when requested although it acknowledges the request and says it is playing but never plays. Home button on my phone Sony Xperia 5 ii home button no longer functions like it's supposed to before these recent updates. In fact, navigation and closing windows, going back no longer functions like it used to. It wasn't broke. Why are they trying to fix it? I would like to roll back.
